FBT is often treated as a once a year tax and after lodging the annual FBT return, many businesses “close the book” on FBT for another year. We believe that FBT requires a proactive approach to compliance, process and policy. By doing this, businesses can access many fringe benefit opportunities and achieve significant FBT savings, but also manage risk.
In this webinar we will share with you the key areas of risk, misunderstanding and unbudgeted FBT cost that we identified throughout the 2018 FBT season.
Topics to be covered will include:
Probably the biggest FBT challenge. In this section we will analyse;
